Lori Biwer Stewart: The Inky Crow Linocuts

Lori Biwer Stewart uses the humble medium of linocut to create fanciful, narrative original prints, each one pulled by hand by the artist.

Biwer Stewart describes the linocut process as “carving from a linoleum plate. I absolutely love the process of carving the image. Any image that I create starts as a really loose drawing, and then slowly develops details and texture as I carve. The only reference that I have while I’m carving is the image that I have in my head, and the finished image usually turns out to be much different. In a certain way, I let the artwork create itself; I’m just the worker bee.”

Trained in design but not printmaking, Biwer Sewart learned from fellow printmakers, reference books, guided by a love of printmaking to develop her skills in linocut. Biwer Stewart’s images reference the human figure, often female, or narrative stories involving symbols such as keys, birds and doors. She is a resident of Osage, Iowa.
